    I woke up to thunderstorms last night or this morning. I don't even know what time it was. I run around closing all the windows when we really needed the cool air the most. My blind in the bedroom fell down I'm wrestling with the tye backs on the curtains trying to close the curtains. Ozzie is stuck to the side of the bed he thinks the firecrackers have returned.

    I counted duck heads this morning and nobody has floated off yet. We do have a fishing boat and I'm seriously going to get hubbie to put the motor on it in case we need it. I wish I had some hip wader boots to feed the chickens and ducks with. I do have some rubber over the knee boots and those will do for now. [​IMG]I'm so glad the ducks like the water and are able to swim. I haven't checked the koi pond yet. The fish might be next door who knows.


    Have a great day all I have to feed all the ducks and chickens here.

    I hope the koi haven't washed away poor things.

    That's good, I was thinking they may have to grow legs and walk home.

    Good morning everyone. I went out to feed and water everyone and I saw Rhonda Runner in the pool. There sit Uno beside Que Sera. They have her babysitting the baby. She looked totally happy and she looked like a responsible babysitter. so cute.



    Patti how is Opie doing? Did he come inside for his kibbles? Give him a big hug from me.

    I can picture that now, how precious. A teen age duck baby sitting just like what we all did when teens. lol

    No Opie didn't come in today it has been pouring rain most of the morning so he's been hanging out with his girls he has 5 now that the other 2 drakes have been re homed but one is brooding on nothing [it is her profession] she is a pro brooder. missing her summer of fun. He is still getting us to keeping those girls happy, [Takes alot of work] lol

    Yes Que Sera is a little teenage babysitter. I wonder if she will go to the show with all her money she makes..[​IMG]

    I'm glad you got the rain I know you were needing it. Maybe some of ours will head your way.[​IMG] It's nice and sunny today and I hope Deb is having some dry weather today. I know she wants to get her pool up.

    I know Opie is happy now.. Head drake with 5 girls. Well except for the broody minus one then. You might want to give him an energy drink. (just Kidding).

    LOL...that sure brings back memories! We would save up our money so we could go to the roller skating rink on Friday or Saturday nights.

    Yep, dry today and if all goes well, the pool guy will be at my house tomorrow. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Opie the stud duck! I love him!
